As the Easter season is upon us, we are reminded of the scriptures of the risen Christ. John 3:16 tells us that "GOD so loved the world, he gave his only begotten son", so that those among us who believe in the Christ can have eternal life.
Jesus told his disciples that he goes to prepare a place in his father's house for them to spend eternity. For his disciples will be the judges of the twelve tribes of Israel.
Is your future secure? Have you done all you can to make a place for Jesus in your heart? If not, there will be no place in Heaven for you, when you leave this life.
I pray that each of you that have not made a true decision to accept Jesus as your Saviour, and Lord, do so before it is too late. God loves each of us so much, that he sacrificed his own son, to become the final sacrifice, the ultimate sacrifice.
Our sins are washed away. They are as if they never existed. Gone, are the worries and the guilt of past discretions.
Like the woman that was brought before the Lord. She was caught, in the act, of adultery. A crowd was with her accusers, all with stones ready to condemn this woman.
Jesus was writing something in the dirt when they asked him what should they do. One pastor said Jesus was writing the sins of the accuser in the sand. When Jesus said let those among you without sin cast the first stone, the accuser saw his sins in the sand, Jesus stood up and took his foot and wiped them away, and after the crowd dispersed without casting a stone, he asked the woman "where are thine accusers?" Jesus then told her to "go, and sin no more"
With the simple motion of his foot sliding across the sand, Jesus wiped the sins away of the accuser, and the woman.
With the selfless act of laying down his life for all humanity, he saved the world from sin!
Happy Easter, and GOD bless each of you.
